One of the free stamp sets I earned with a qualifying order is called Island Vibes. It is a DisINKtive stamp set. This means that the stamps create different opacities in a single stamped image. If you look at the card I made you can this in the leaves. Some parts of the image are lighter and some are darker giving the image almost a 3D look.
This is a very simple card to make (#simplestamping) as it only uses stamps, ink and paper. I used a 5 3/8 x 3 7/8 piece of Basic White card stock. I put this in my Stamparatus and stamped it once in Granny Apple Green ink in one corner. Then I flipped the paper and put it in the exact same spot as the other side and stamped it again. It kind of makes it look like it was framed. I stamped the sentiment from the stamped set called Peaceful Moments in Misty Moonlight ink.
